I am an Artist and a Writer.

I am a BIG Fan of Cartoons, Animated Movies
Comic Books (mostly Superheroes) and Video Games.

To list them all would take too long
(although, Sonic The Hedgehog, Batman, The Powerpuff Girls/Dexter's Laboratory
Danny Phantom/Fairly Oddparents, Looney Tunes and Transformers are my personal favorites)

So, let's just say I am a fan of MOST, if not all.


I also don't give a darn what Critics, Fanatics and Trolls think of my work.
I LOVE what I do...and, I wouldn't trade it for the world.
Interests
As there is much anticipation for the game, here is the information I have gathered so far on Batman: Arkham Knight.

the game is set for release on October 14, 2014, for the Playstation 4, Xbox One and Microsoft Windows gaming platforms.


The information below is from Wikipedia, so it's legit.



 **********




THE PLOT


One year after the death of the
Joker during the events of Arkham City, Batman is struggling to come to terms with the absence of his nemesis and the uncomfortable feeling that the pair shared a bond deeper than either could admit. Without the Joker's chaotic presence, Gotham's citizens have never felt safer, and crime in the city has dramatically declined. However, this gives Batman's enemies, including Penguin, Two-Face, and Harley Quinn, a chance to unite with the singular goal of killing Batman. On Halloween night, Scarecrow threatens the city with his newly-created strain of fear toxin and bombs planted throughout Gotham, forcing the evacuation of the city's six million civilians. Only criminals remain in the city, leaving Commissioner Gordon and the Gotham City Police overwhelmed. Anticipating a new threat, Batman continues to develop crime-fighting technology, and maintains a vigil over the city.

Arkham Knight's Gotham City is approximately five times the scale of the open-air Arkham City prison in Arkham City. The game takes place in the center of the city, which is split into three island areas, with various districts such as the neon-tinged Chinatown, and the industrial shipping yard. Oracle has set up her communications headquarters in Gotham clock tower, which also houses a makeshift Batcave

 

 



THE CHARACTERS


Arkham Knight features Batman (Kevin Conroy), a superhero trained to the peak of human physical perfection and an expert in martial arts. He is aided by his friend police commissioner James Gordon, and Gordon's daughter Barbara, who operates covertly as the superhero Oracle. Rocksteady stated that Oracle is "such a strong character," that they wanted to "bring her to life in this game rather than have her as just [a] voice." Arkham Knight brings Batman into conflict with the super-villains Scarecrow, Penguin (Nolan North), Two-Face (Troy Baker), Harley Quinn (Tara Strong), and Riddler (Wally Wingert). The game introduces the villain Arkham Knight, a character created specifically for the game by Rocksteady, DC Comics CCO and comic-book writer Geoff Johns, and DC co-publisher and comic artist Jim Lee. The Arkham Knight is described as a militarized version of Batman, with the "A" logo of the Arkham Asylum facility worn as an emblem on his chest.

 

 



GAMEPLAY

 

Many gadgets and gameplay elements from previous Arkham games return, including the grapnel gun, line launcher and batarangs, the countering system and detective vision. Batman can use some gadgets while flying, such as batarangs or the line-launcher. The character can fly throughout the city using his cape, with gliding now allowing for longer sustained flights, steeper dives and higher climbs. The grapnel gun can now be used to instantly switch directions during a glide.

Changes to the combat system include the ability to combine attacks on prone enemies without interrupting the streak. Batman can also counter enemy attacks, and throw them into other enemies for increased damage. Typical enemies are now capable of performing a charge and tackle attack only used by larger enemies in previous games; precision timed dodging and a batarang can instantly defeat some charging enemies. Batman can now access grates from far away, allowing him to roll forward and immediately get under the grate if in range, instead of having to be right on top of them, while also initiating multiple takedowns from within them. Arkham Knight introduces "Fear Takedown", where Batman can subdue up to three enemies simultaneously as long as he remains undetected; time is slowed after each take down, allowing the player to target the next enemy. Hazardous items within the area, such as power generators, can be integrated into combat for environmental attacks. Batman is also capable of disarming enemies wielding items like baseball bats, and using the acquired weapon on several foes before it breaks. Some enemies are armed with guns which significantly damage Batman.

The game introduces Batman's car, the Batmobile, as a drivable vehicle. The bulletproof Batmobile can be summoned to the player's location at will, while on foot or, if airborne, the car can be sent to meet Batman as he lands. The vehicle features the ability to perform jumps, speed boosts, rotate on the spot, smash through objects like barricades and trees, and fire missiles that can immobilize enemy vehicles. At specific locations, Batman can eject from the Batmobile and immediately begin gliding around Gotham City. Some enemies will run away at the sight of the vehicle, eliminating the need for Batman to fight them, and enemies attacking the car can be subdued by its automated taser defenses. Like Batman, the Batmobile can be upgraded with new abilities. Riddler Trophies return, now including objectives requiring the Batmobile, such as a timed race in an underground tunnel that uses radar pulses to change parts of the track.



 **********


On a side note, I recently found that Wal-Mart stores have a $5 pre-order giftcard.
which allowed earlier access at the Playable Harley Quinn DLC, as well as the 'Prototype Batmobile'

Am I the only one who noticed that Bubbles and Buttercup
altered their 'costumes' to look more.."sexy" while Blossom sort of left hers alone?


Just something I noticed.

I think all three looked somewhat "sexy" (seeing how tight Blossom's suit is to show off the abs)

But the other two made theirs moreso.

For me,"sexy" is whenever flesh and skin ISN'T covered.
a woman can be a bodybuilder type, but if she is wearing a full body suit..she looks Normal to me.

Since I've listen to War of the World as kid, I though  it was for real. Why can't they put Orsen Welles and H.G Welles behind bars and let them rot for causing a nation-wide panic?

If aliens do attack us for real, I'm sure mankind would lose because the aliens have superior technology and weapons than out own.

You know something, I think The Dark Knight Returns takes place a couple of years before the first episode of Batman Beyond.

No, it doesn't.

It takes place in a different universe entirely. Batman Beyond NEVER happened on TDKR.

True, but both did show elder Bruce.

Of course they both did. Bruce is human, he gets old just like everybody else.
but, the point is that there are some obvious differences between the two versions of Future Gotham.

For ONE thing Batman Beyond was produced in the late 90s, while TDKR was originally published in the 1980s.


and, people in the 80s had a much different POV on how the future would be than we do today.

If it's about Damian Wayne, then: "No", and "NEVER".

Oh, cause he killed Dick Grayson.

and, he's a jerky brat who has NO IDEA what being Batman is really about.

He is more of Talia's son, than Bruce's.


The only Damian I really liked was the one from Brave and the Bold, in which his mother was Catwoman
and, he was a pretty decent kid who was reluctant to take on the Batman Mantle at first.

STRANGE how Alternate Versions are more likable than the Original.

I like your new webcam.

It shows how evil and villainy can have a dramatic entrance!
